The only way you can beat the lawyers is to die with nothing ~ Will Rogers
Make crime pay. Become a Lawyer ~ Will Rogers
This is week 19 of LBC posting, and for the very first time I was completely stumped by the topic. I do have experience with Lawyers… I actually worked at one time for the Court Service, and the young man responsible for my title ‘Grannymar’, is and was a very successful Lawyer in Dublin. Trawling through the back corridors of my brain, no story was forthcoming.
In desperation I got the Scrabble game out… Taking the word Lawyers I used the letters as tiles to see where it might take me… law laws way wear ye yes
Almost at the stage of giving up, my email pinged this morning and the day was saved!
Now a little background information is needed…..
On 30th October this year, I had a healthy flow of emails throughout the day. One in particular caught my attention.
I’m a freelance journalist and I got your email address from Darragh Doyle who I was in contact with about an article I am writing for the Irish Times. The article is examining the question what happens to a person’s digital assets (ie websites, blogs, social media accounts, email etc) after they die.
It went on
I was quizzing Darragh on his thoughts on the matter as a well known blogger and social media activist and he mentioned that you had discussed with your daughter as to what should happen to your excellent blog if you died.
Would you be possible for you to tell me more about this?
I have indeed discussed this very aspect with Elly… Well it went something like this.
I did have a conversation with John, gave my views on the subject, and links and contact information to others who are more knowledgeable and have indeed spoken or written on the subject.
Perhaps it is a subject you have not given thought to. If not, then now is the time to think ahead.
